Today was a banner day, capping off 15 months of pursuit of a DBE certification. We are super excited here at the firm, but more importantly, we want to share why this is important for our clients and teaming partners.
Trans Associates has been in business since 1989 offering transportation engineering services. That’s a good long time. Long enough to see the industry change from designing roadways for maximum throughput of the automobile, to now thoughtfully considering the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists and other citizens previously excluded from the priorities of regional transportation initiatives.
Throughout this time, Trans Associates has continued to adapt and grow, assisting clients with transportation studies and design plans that are of the highest technical quality. Our staff, many of whom have been here for more than 20 years, is experienced and eager to apply their experience to new transportation challenges. For our clients and teaming partners, this means they have the benefit of working with the “A” team. Our team is responsive and nimble, with experience they can apply to a variety of transportation issues. Contact us today to learn more!
